Kremlin, Changing of the guards

The Changing of the Guards

 

 Inside the Kremlin

An event not to be missed when inside the Kremlin is the changing of the guards. It is quite a spectacular event, with horses and guards, guardsmen firing guns in the air and the only sound drowning the yelling of the commander is the clicking of cameras from the huge crowd of spectators.

One of the most spectacular sights within the Kremlin is the large bell that is on display in the major square. It’s called  The Tsar’s bell and it stands on a pedestal not far from the Ivan the Great belltower. It is actually by far the largest bell ever cast, it’s more than six meters in diameter,  stands more than six meters tall and weighs more than 200 tons.
